Bob -

Very well said - also, while it is true that IPv4 address allocation
and assignment policy may become less relevant over time, it is not 
at all clear that will be the case with other policies, such as the 
IPv4 transfer policy.

In any case, if you have views on how address space in the region 
should be administered, please participate in one or more of:

  - The ARIN ppml mailing list
  - The ARIN Public Policy Meeting (in-person or remote)
  - The ARIN Public Policy Consultations held at each NANOG

We have nearly a dozen proposed policy changes being considered 
at the present time, and the time to express support or concern
is _now_ (as opposed to after these policies changes have been
approved, implemented and are in use.)
